Loft Resumes

Loft Resumes Little known fact: Recruiters spend six seconds before making an initial “fit/no fit” decision... The 6-second-rule is a discovery which came from an eye-tracking study that observed 30 professional recruiters during a 10-week period. The study found recruiters had an erratic “gaze-path” when reviewing an average resume. To add to the erratic “gaze-path,” the study found that recruiters had high levels of cognitive-load (mental activity), which means it was harder for a recruiter to make a decision based on the average self-generated resume. Interrupt the 6 second thought sequence... Your recruiters mind is focused on finding the right resume as quickly as possible.
